Turkey’s FM Cavusoglu Visits Cyprus’ Occupied Zone

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu arrived late Monday night at the occupied northern part of Cyprus to meet with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci and hold a press conference.

The visit comes after the sudden withdrawal of Akinci from peace talks last Thursday. Diplomats say that the Cavusoglu meeting comes at a time when reunification negotiations between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot sides are at a fragile point.

Cavusoglu met with Akinci at 11:30 am while a press conference is scheduled at 3:00 pm.

Meanwhile, at 5:00 pm, Akinci is scheduled to meet with Elizabeth Spehar, United Nations Secretary-General Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP).
